Performers

Performer proposals due October 15, 2014. (Proposal Requirements document (PDF))

Stage and street performers please note:

Entertainment for the Medieval Fair is selected by a jury process.  The Medieval Fair is a medieval festival and not a renaissance festival.  The flavor is as different as chocolate is to vanilla.  The year is 1360 in Avalon England near Glastonbury Abbey and King Edward III has just signed a peace treaty with France.  The Entertainment Jury is focused on selecting quality acts that best fit our theme as well as our mission statement “To ignite the spark of curiosity that leads to lifelong learning through educational entertainment.”  The Medieval Fair is a program of the University of Oklahoma Outreach.  All performances and content should be appropriate for general audiences, i.e. Rated G.

 

Medieval Fair Cast

Want to show off your inner Knight or Lady, Jester or Musician?  Audition to be part of the 2015 Medieval Fair cast on Sunday, Oct. 26, 2014 in the Sooner Room of the Oklahoma Memorial Union.  (Facebook Event: 2015 Cast Auditions for Medieval Fair )

 

The Cast Program provides individuals an opportunity to learn about the history, customs, manners, music, dance and dress of the time period while developing improvisational acting skills in preparation for their performances at the Fair.
